Hi there friends...
Since the renovations on the first floor have been finished and everything was put back together the one thing that kept bugging me was the lighting over the table in our breakfast area.
When I got the new Ballard catalog and saw all the lighting was 15% off I bit the bullet and ordered this lantern I had my eye on!
It seems every time we make an update in this house it's never a quick fix!!
The new lantern is quite heavy so we had to replace the original plastic electrical box with this metal one.
while we were at it I was finally able to get the light centered over the table.
Not having it centered before drove me nuts!!
Instead of patching up the hole and having to repaint the entire ceiling I chose to use a ceiling medallion...which of course got a paint treatment of it's own!
I love the way the medallion turned out.
I used AS Versailles and Chateau Grey along with both clear and dark wax to give it an old layered look.
Now I have something else in mind for the the kitchen...the wheels are always spinning lol!!
Have a super week!
